Day 2 of the 2022 Caribbean Cup freediving competition turned out to be just as challenging for some athletes as on Day 1.
On the happy side, Taiwan’s Lin Lan Lien set a women’s Free Immersion (FIM) national record dive of 59m/193.57ft, and Honduras’s John Bodden set a men’s national Constant Weight with Bifins (CWTB) record with a dive to 50m/164ft.
For many athletes, after such a long time off the competition stage meant that four competitors didn’t quite reach their goals.
Taiwan’s Mingchun Huang, who was vying for a men’s national record in the Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) discipline with a 63m/206ft dive, earned a red card for blacking out when he reached the surface.
Mexico’s Pedro Tapia also sought a men’s CNF national record with a 74m/243ft dive, but got a red card when he too blacked out upon surfacing.
Poland’s Rafal Pollwoda sought a men’s Constant Weight with Monofin (CWT) national record with a 102m/335ft dive, but earned a yellow card for ET.
The USA’s Tory George was going for a men’s FIM national and continental record with an announced dive to 102m/335ft, but didn’t make the attempt.
